The City of Livermore is reminding everyone to stay safe by staying out of the arroyos. With all of our recent rain the arroyos have swollen throughout the city. Please refrain from playing, boating, rafting, and wading in the arroyos. During a major storm the waters can become fast moving and extremely dangerous.


On Saturday, 2/25/17, the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District (LVJUSD) Music Department will host a Solo & Ensemble Festival for music students from the Tri-Valley Area. This is the 55th year the Livermore District Music Staff has hosted the event. The festival will be held Los Positas Junior College and runs from 8:30 am until 4:30 pm, followed by a formal, “Command Performance” at 7:00 pm in the Barbara Mertes Center for the Arts.

The purpose of a Solo & Ensemble Festival is to foster a love for “Art” music. Performance literature will consist of “classical” repertoire. Students may perform as a soloist or as part of an ensemble (duet, trio, etc.).

Approximately 200 students participate annually. Participants must be music students in their district music program. The festival is divided into five events (instrument families), Brass & Percussion, Woodwinds, Strings, Vocal, and Piano.

Entrants will have five minutes to perform their selection in front of a clinician. All clinicians are public school educators known for their expertise as musicians and teachers. After each performance the soloist/ensemble receives comments and a rating, which rates their performance against a standard for their age group. Ratings range from “needs improvement” to “superior”.

In addition, performers that have demonstrated superior musicality may receive a Command Screening. A command screening is a second opportunity to perform, this time in front of a “screening judge”. Of these screenings, 12-15 performers will be selected for a formal evening performance at the Barbara Mertes Center of the Arts.

The Command Performance represents a cross-section of the district’s music program and will represent a sampling of performers on a variety of instruments, as well as various age levels, from the district music program.

All events and performances, including the evening command performance are open to the public. Admission is free.

Focus on Kindness

Dear Livermore Community,
Winter days may still be short, but the brightness in our schools this month is reflective of our bright future. Throughout our District, we are celebrating Science and Engineering, Career and Technical Education (CTE), and Black History Month. I encourage you to attend some of the many events happening throughout our community.

Perhaps the highlight of February, in many of our classrooms, is Valentine’s Day. This year, as we celebrate friendship and family as part of Valentine’s Day, I encourage all of us to extend the kindness we practice on that day into a daily practice. Several years ago, I was the recipient of a “random act of kindness,” and I am still touched by that event and more positive because of it. It’s not surprising that researchers show that being kind actually helps us be happier, healthier, and less stressed. February 12
th-18th has been declared “Random Acts of Kindness Week.” Let’s all plan, intentionally, to be especially kind this month. Our schools, our community, and our lives will benefit!

Warm regards,

Kelly Bowers, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
